A woman in Michigan and her family were found dead on Sunday after authorities denied her an emergency protection order from her husband.
Tirany Savage, 35, her son Dayton Cowdrey, 13, her mother Kim Lynnette Ebright, 58, and Bo Eugene Savage, 35, were all found dead from gunshot wounds to the head on Sunday before dawn.
Tirany filed a protection order in Michigan’s 34th Circuit Court on June 24 and said that her husband, Bo Eugene, bought a firearm and has repeatedly threatened suicide.
“He has mental health issues and recently purchased a firearm, and that is concerning to me. He keeps saying he is going to blow his brains out, and I do not want my safety or my son’s safety in jeopardy,” Tirany said.
Troy Daniel, the judge that denied Tirany’s protection order, said it found insufficient evidence of immediate or irreparable injury and suggested Tirany file the order in divorce court.
“Insufficient evidence of a showing of immediate and irreparable injury, loss, or damage. Petitioner can request a restraining order in divorce case,” Daniel wrote in a PPO document.
Tirany filed for divorce on Thursday, three days before her death.
The Roscommon County Sheriff’s Office said the incident is being investigated as a murder-suicide.
